So you just have a Canon XC10 camera on hand? Trying to use Edius to handle XC10 XF-AVC footage? If so, you may want to know if Edius has native support for Canon XC10 XF-AVC files. Just read this post to find the answer.
Actually, EDIUS 8 is the ‘first NLE to support Canon XF-AVC codec’. Grass Valley has announced an update to EDIUS 8 with support for Canon’s new XF-AVC codec. This is announced alongside the C300 Mk II and XC10 cameras, which use XF-AVC codec to record video recordings.
If you’ve updated to the latest EDIUS 8, you will be able to edit Canon XC10 XF-AVC files without any hassles. But for those who still use the old version of EDIUS editing software package, you will not have native support for XF-AVC files. In this case, we would recommend converting them first. Here’s a quick tutorial guiding you through the process of transcoding Canon XC10 XF-AVC files for use in Edius smoothly.
